Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed with heavy handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus.

Appearance: About 1/4" inch of cream colored foam that quickly disappeared. Dark copperish amber, a slight bit cloudy. Some lacing.
Smell: A bready aroma with a slight amount of spiciness. There is a malt presence, but can't detect the hops. Can smell the oak, however.
Taste: Piney hops are right at the beginning of the taste, with a slight barley sweeness in the middle. The oak flavor is at the end with some bitterness. The oak was not overwhelming; it was nicely subtle.
Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel. Not much carbonation. A tad bitter on the finish.
Overall: A very drinkable beer, however, I'm not aware of the alcohol in the taste probably because of the sweetness. Very tasty, but definitely not a session beer. Would go well with roasted meats, cheeses (e.g., blue cheese) and greens.

On-tap @ The Brass Rail in Hoboken, NJ.

Pours a hazy, deep orange color. Thick, off-white head with good retention and lacing on the glass. Complex yet relatively subtle aroma for an IPA. Notes of caramel, vanilla, and orange. Those aromas carried over to the flavor but slightly overpowered the hops. An interesting IPA that was enjoyable but not one I am dying to try again. Worth a shot if you are tired of the run of the mill IPAs and looking for something different.

Good bar-poured head which lasts a long time, leaving a blanket of lace after each sip. The liquid is extensively cloudy with an orange-amber hue.

Nice combination of floral hop and mild yeast smell. Pale malt background.

Mild start with a neutral pale malt. The beer heads rapidly to a bitterness that is far from overwhelming. The finish is bitter but short lived. Well-balanced, particularly for an IPA. No notable oak elements. Predictable body and carbonation.
